ST. PETERSBURG, FL (WSCR) — The Chicago White Sox lost their fifth consecutive game when the Tampa Bay Rays knocked them off 5-0 on Monday night. Although it’s still early in the season, the White Sox are now five games back of the AL Central lead.
“If you start thinking about other things,” reliever Jesse Crain said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “Waiting for people to come back or if you’re paying attention to what other teams are doing you kind of forget about your own team and you get caught up and don’t play as well.”

Things could quickly turn around for both the White Sox and the division. Right now the Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Royals are the top two teams while the White Sox and Minnesota Twins are bringing up the rear.
But there’s no use in the White Sox worrying about what everyone else is doing, especially this early in the season.
“All we can do is worry about what we can control,” Crain said. “And that’s how we play and hopefully that helps a lot.”
